Tortilla Soup

Growing up in the southwest, I didn't fully understand spring until I moved to New England. While we definitely have a real winter in New Mexico, replete with snow and single-digit temperatures, you are always confident that the end of winter is near. The cold is reasonable there. It comes just before Christmas, hangs around through January, and starts to lift in February.

Homemade Vegan Irish Cream

Did anyone else know that two of the things that give Irish cream its distinctive taste are cocoa and coffee? I didn't. I never really knew exactly what Irish cream was until I decided to try to veganize it and started doing my research. It makes sense now why it's so good! Anything with chocolate, coffee, and whiskey... Well, you just can't go wrong!

Sriracha Shepherd's Pie with Sweet Potato Hash

I have a confession to make. I have tried. Several times. And I do not like shepherd's pie. I find it to be bland and complicated to make. With it's billowy mashed potatoes mashed with plenty of fat, shepherd's pie is also not your beacon of health.
